FaithAction believes that faith-based and community organisations provide services that are key to their local communities and tailored for them based on their close knowledge of their local community’s needs. This page lists a number of consultations from various departments where faith groups can raise their voices and have an influence on a national agenda.
If you want to speak to a member of the FaithAction team about any of these consultations before completing them, please get in touch with the national office on 0845 094 6350 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Consultation on Code of Practice F: Donation of solid organs and tissue for transplantation
The HTA has revised its Code of Practice F: Donation of solid organs and tissue for transplantation to reflect amendments to the Human Tissue Act 2004 as a result of the Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Act 2019.
The revised code will provide clinical advice and guidance for organ and tissue transplant professionals in England on how the new law will affect their practice from spring 2020. It also provides guidance in situations where someone’s consent to donate their organs is not clear or when clinical decisions are complex.
This consultation asks professionals working in the field of organ donation for their views on the draft version of Part two: deceased organ and tissue donation of our Code of Practice F only.

Advancing our health: prevention in the 2020s
The Government is seeking your views on proposals to tackle the causes of preventable ill health in England. We know that our health is shaped by the environment in which we live, the choices we make, and the services we receive – and all of these need action in order for us to be healthier.
The Green Paper, Advancing our health: prevention in the 2020s was published on 22 July. FaithAction was involved in the discussions that preceded it, through the Health and Wellbeing Alliance, and it’s great to see that faith groups get at least a passing mention in connection with ‘trailblazer’ areas for tackling obesity.
Now is the chance to give your views on what action needs taking next. The consultation is open until 11:59pm on 14 October 2019.
